Confession: I’m easily distracted by bright colours and shiny things.

Sometimes this can be good thing.

In this case, it led me to discover that Vickie Szumigala had nominated me for the One Lovely Blog Award. I have often visited her site, but this particular post drew me in: Sunflowers…..Buds To Blooms. It displays a brilliant yellow sunflower from a variety of angles, which made it impossible for me not to take a closer look.

Vickie thanks for nominating me for this award!

♦ ♦ ♦

As with most awards in our vast blogging community, there are rules. You must thank the person who nominated you and link back to their site. Done and done. You must also share 7 things about yourself (this is never easy for me); then pass the award on to 10 other bloggers and notify them of the nomination.

Here we go…

7 Things About Me

1. I don’t understand why people are mean to each other because it
takes much less energy and effort to be nice
2. I dance when I’m alone
3. I have supportive friends
4. I try my best to support my friends
5. I always carry an umbrella, but don’t always use it
6. I believe the digital divide needs to be eliminated
7. I had a lisp when I was a child

If
The way
Looks
Shaky
Suspiciously sloped
And
Scarred
With
Rust
In places
Where
The elements
Have
Taken their toll


And
What
Feels
Like
The weight
Of
The world’s worries
Fall
Again and again
Upon you

Rest

Before
Moving forward
To take
The next step
Up

Dare we
Walk tall
Happy
As
A field
Of
Daisies
In bloom
With
Arms and hearts
Open
And
Upturned faces


Reaching
To feel
The yellow warmth
Of
Sunlight
Bathe away
Doubts
Surrounding
The dreams
That
Take root
Within us
Then
Ache
To spring
Boldly
In to
Being

I knew
Every
Raindrop
By name
As
Each
Fell
Without hesitation
Upon
My skin


Rolled gently
Then
Softly caressed
Me
As if
I were
A fading flower
In need
Of
A life saving
Drink

Things
Fall apart
Sometimes
Suddenly
From
The breath
Of
A faint wind


That
Scatters
In to fragments
What was believed
To be sturdy
As
Perennial weeds
Deceptively veiled
In the softness
Of
A thousand
Mesmerizing
Points of beauty
Too soon lost
As
They dreamily float
Becoming
Moments
We are uncertain
Were
Ever
Lived

By name
You
Are
King of the universe
But
Conquering
This world
Is
The secret ambition
That
Sparks the glow
Of
Mischief

Within
Those
Glassy
Blue
Feline orbs
Constantly
Surveying the landscape
For
An opportunity
To pounce
And
Seize control
Of
What
You
Have
Always viewed
As
Your domain

The child
Inside me
Waits
Anxiously
For
You
To open
And
Become
The bestower
Of
The wondrous wishes


That
Play
In my dreams
Fidgeting for freedom
Which
Will arrive
When
Your
Blossoming seeds
Take flight
Like
Stars
Adrift
Across
Unending
Azure skies
